VDR developer version 1.7.2
New developer version 1.7.2 of VDR was released today. The VDR-sources Git was updated accordingly.
From the HISTORY file:
- Added a note about 'Id' being obsolete to the description of cDevice::PlayAudio().
- Switched to the new S2API driver API, which was decided to become the official
DVB API in the kernel (based on patches from Igor M. Liplianin, Niels Wagenaar
and Edgar Hucek). VDR now uses the S2API driver from http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb.
In order to correctly detect DVB-S2 capable devices, you need to apply the patch
from ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/vdr/Developer/v4l-dvb-s2api-add-s2-capability.diff to
the driver source, because the S2API doesn't provide a way of telling whether a
device can handle DVB-S2 transponders.
- The cDvbTuner::IsTunedTo() function now also checks the symbol rate in case of
DVB-S and DVB-C.
- Improved handling PES video packets with zero length when converting from TS to PES.
For good replay in Transfer Mode on full featured DVB cards you may want to apply
the patch from ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/vdr/Developer/av7110_v4ldvb_api5_audiobuf_test_1.diff
to the driver (thanks to Oliver Endriss).
